Famed actress Lauren Bacall dies at 89
Actress Lauren Bacall, the husky-voiced Hollywood icon known for her sultry sensuality, died Tuesday. She was 89.
Robbert de Klerk, co-managing partner of the Humphrey Bogart Estate, said Bacall died in New York.
Dick Cavett: Her presence was tangible
She was anointed a legend during her lifetime by the American Film Institute, but she wasn’t fond of that, she told CNN’s Larry King in an interview in 2005.
“I don’t like the category. And to begin with, to me, a legend is something that is not on the Earth, that is dead,” she said.
Legends were part of the past, and Bacall preferred the present.
But her international fame began before the backdrop of World War II, in 1944 with her first film, “To Have and Have Not,” which she made with future husband Humphrey Bogart.
They married in 1945, had two children and went on to make more films together, including “The Big Sleep” (1946), “Dark Passage” (1947) and “Key Largo” (1948). Bogart died in 1957.
